Every cloud has a silver lining.
;4&ne of the silver linings to the finan
cial cloud that has overspread the
country is found in the fact that a
large per cent, of the worthless
immigrants brought here by manu
facturers have been starved out and
are going back acioss the waters by
the thousands. Let them go and as
many more as can be induced to
leave. The protected manufacturers
are realizing that they have lost their
grip on the government..
The Echo has received the address
by Mr. JSd Baxter delivered before
the representatives of the Brother
hood of Locomotive Engineers of the
Louisville and Nashville company at
Nashville, Tenn., August 25, 1893,
relative to the reduction of 10 per
cent, made by the company. The
address is of manly and heroic senti
ments. In well-founded words he
advised his associates to accept the
reduction for the present and to
practice judicious economy.
ihe people of this country were a
few weeks ago crying for our national
Congress to come together in session
and apply a remedy as early as pos®
sible to the prevailing stringency of
money. The country is flooded with
good money, but unfortunately gen
eral confidence is lost and vaults, old
stockings and mattresses are taxed
to their utmost. The monied kind
arc holding their own, sevenng*circu
Cojgress is now in session ostensi
bly for the purpose of restoring pub
lic confidence in our country’s
financial integrity ; but to many it is
evident that they are only killing
time. The east is crying for gold,
the west is Ci-ying for silver, but the
laboring man and his family arc cry
ing for bread. Which shall it be?
The condition of our country as it
relates to her finances is not a ques
tion of politics but of bread and
meat. Shall the poor man subsist or
shall he perish? Will ho bo forced
to steal and be imprisoned and leave
his family to starve, or will he be
permitted to labor honestly and sup
port them ?
These are important questions.
We rise with one of our contempo
raries to ask:
“Have all our statesmen gone to
seed? Have we no Alexander Harn
iltous? Cannot somebody rise above
party and personal aggrandisement
and do the country a service?”
It is lime for further and definite
action to prevent the unseen and
irresistible forces from hurling this
country headlong to a woeful termi
The Echo hopes things will lake
a sudden change and relieve the
stringency’of money.
Lynch law, as the terra is common
ly used, means the punishment of
alleged offenses by private and un
authorized persons without a Inal
according to forms of law. The
origin of this law is traced to several
sources. One story is that a farmer
in Virginia named Lynch caught a
thief, of delivering him
up to justice, tied him to a tree and
flogged him with his own hands.
Another is that in 1687 a man named
Lynch was sent to the Colonies to
suppress piracy. The laws were so
carelessly administered in the new
country that it is thought that Judge
Lynch was empowered to deal in a
summary way with the pirates, and
thus gave rise to the name. The
source, however, has been traced to
an earlier date. In Ireland, in
1493, —so the story runs—James
Fitzstephcns Lynch was mayor and
warden of Galway, Being engaged
in trade with Spain he sent his son
there to buy a cargo of wine. The
young man spent the money in
trusted to him for this purpose, but
succeeded in buying the cargo on
credit. The Spaniard from whom
he bought sent his nephew with
Lynch on his return voyage to
Ireland, where the money was to be
paid. In order to conceal his defal
cation young Lynch had the Spaniard
thrown overboard. When he reached
home he was received with honor.
A sailor, however, upon his deathbed
told the mayor of his son’s crime.
The young man was tried before his
father, convicted and sentenced to
be hanged. His family and others
tried to prevent the execution, but
the father, seeing that the sentence
could not be carried out in the usual
way, took his son up a winding
stairway to a window overlooking
the public street, with his own hands
fastened the halter attached to his
neck to a staple in the wall and
acted as executioner. The council
books of Galway are said to contain
this record: “James Lynch, mayor
of Galway, hanged his own son out
of the window for defrauding and
killing strangers, without martial or
common law, to show a good example
to posterity,”
On the authority of Mr. Milsaps,
banker, of Jackson, Miss., the state,

A New Paper.
There is to be another paper on tne
Mississippi gulf coast. “The Gulf
Coast News Publishing Company”
has been organized at Pass Christian
and in two or three weeks “The News”
will be launched upon the public, in
connection with a fine job printing
department. Mr. W. L. May, one
of the chief representatives of the
company, purchased the artistic and
complete outfit in Chicago last week,
and from a view of the material we
judge it will be one of the finest
sheets on the coast. The paper will
be purely Democratic both in local
and national affairs, and will be
edited and managed by gentlemen
w'ho are Democrats both in heart and
actions. We wish the new venture
success, and trust the people will
appreciate and know a good thing
when (hey see one.
Mail System in Olden Times.
Less than fifty years ago there
was really no postal svstem in this
country. Previous to 1847 the mails
were carried by private firms and
rates varied according to distance.
Carriers often traveled on foot or
horseback and th p progress was slow.
In 1846 some of the postotflees is
sued stamps of their own, called pro
visional issues. The adhesive stamp
was first used in this countiy in ’47,
and the prepayment was made com
pulsory in 1856. In 1863 the stamp
containing the head of Andrew Jack
son was issued, and from then until
1885 the st} le adopted containing the
profiles of presidents of the United
Plenty ol Money.
We hear it said every day that the
hard times.'arc not due to the scarcity
of money, that the banks arc loaded
down with it, etc. That’s just what’s
the matter. The banks, the safety
depositj vaults, the old socks and
tin cans are all full of money, but
you can’t get it, and what good is it
doing? We are in the middle of the
ocean and no water to drink. It can
not be for a lack of confidence in the
banks or the government, that money
is hoarded, or else the bond holders
would “cash up” with the Federal
treasury, and the depositors in the
banks would withdraw their cash.
By common consent Congress is sup
posed to be the family physician,
and first thing for him to do is to
diagnose the case and then apply the
remedy. We are ready for the me
Intelligence from Racine, Wis.,
dated the 4th, says: “Anarchistic
posters have been found tacked on
the dead walls about the city for the
last few days. Nearly 3,000 men
are out of employment and several
labor meetings have been addressed
by Robert Schilling, of Milwaukee.
The posters woie headed “Words
from God,” and told the starving
working folks “to dump the million
aire mayor, Jackson I. Case, into the
lake with the rest of the millionaires,”
and “take their money and buy
bread.” Mayor Case has received
several in his mail.
Every leading newspaper in the
country, says the Memphis Commer
cial, is expressing satisfaction
because of the failure of disreputable
tramps and anarchists to lead unem

and other acts of violence. The
workmen of this country cannot be
led by alien agitators who have no
use for or any comprehension of the
institutions of this government.
Anarchy cannot take root in the free
soil of America, and the advocates of

the derangement of the nerve centers will

Two-thirds of chronic diseases are duo to
the Imperfect action of the nerve centers at

treating those diseases la that they treat the
organ rather than the nerve centers which
are the cause of the trouble.
